    Conjures up a memory from 1970 or 71, of 4 or 5 of us adolescents, late at night, riding our bicycles through our little town of Medford Lakes, NJ, with a cassette player blaring Ramble On, tripping on Orange Barrels. Good times...

    Correction Bill.......Yikes, a BUNCH of us are old!
    BTW....the tracks Silent Otto posted are NOT the original studio recordings. They are live....still Zep, of course, but much rougher than the originals.

    Heartbreaker had the same impact as Purple Haze to my adolescent ears!

    Nothing was ever the same!

    Yup, fond memories. A buddy of mine bought that album while a bunch of us were at the record store the week it was released. We rode our bikes to his house and listened to that album over and over again.

    I’m confused by the article. I always thought that Mendelssohn panned LZ and JP in that review. It sure doesn’t look like that as I read it. The line that Jimmy Page is the heaviest (in the 60s vernacular) white guitarist between 5’4 and 5’8” went right over my head, though.

    Add me to the Old club: I remember going to a Ricky Nelson concert in Columbus, Ohio in the early sixties with my older sister. Was more fascinated with the lead guitar player (than Ricky) who really rocked out. In retrospect James Burton was to Ricky as Don Rich was to Buck Owens their guitar playing combined with the singer (IMHO) greatly contributed to Ricky and Buck's success.
